CosminC – Redefining Vitamin C Useability by Mastering Stability!

In the ever-evolving landscape of cosmetics, vitamin C emerges as a timeless hero, offering a myriad of benefits that redefine beauty standards. Scientifically known as ascorbic acid, it stands as a potent force, delivering positive effects to the skin. 

Renowned for its antioxidant prowess, vitamin C plays a pivotal role in neutralizing free radicals, standing as a steadfast guardian against oxidative stress and premature aging. The ability to stimulate collagen synthesis preserves skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Ascorbic acid inhibits melanin production, aiding in the reduction of dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and promoting a more even skin tone. Furthermore, it has photoprotection properties and stimulates synthesis of barrier lipids. 

However, within the realm of cosmetic formulation, challenges emerge. The stability of ascorbic acid proves delicate, sensitive to heat, light, air and when dissolved in water. This demands innovative formulation techniques and packaging solutions to maintain the efficacy of vitamin C throughout a product's shelf life. 

In response to these challenges, enter CosminC, the revolutionary solution from CosMoDec. 

CosminC is not just an ingredient; it is the answer to the complexities of vitamin C formulation. It introduces an aqueous system where pure ascorbic acid remains stable even at temperatures of 50°C and under sunlight for several months. The stability test over six months at 50°C showcased remarkable resilience, with the active ingredient content consistently above 95%. 

What is more, with CosminC, there is no need for special packaging. You are free to choose the packaging that suits your brand's aesthetic, as the vitamin C remains stable within the aqueous system of CosminC. This newfound freedom in packaging empowers brands to express their unique identity while delivering the transformative benefits of vitamin C. 

CosminC transcends traditional limitations, offering versatility in application. From emulsions and serums to sunscreens and even pressed powders, the possibilities are limitless. This flexibility allows for a diverse range of formulations, meeting the diverse needs of skincare enthusiasts.

The versatility of CosminC is furthermore highlighted by its applicability in formulations ranging from pH 3 to 7 and unlike some derivatives that require conversion in the body, CosminC delivers pure ascorbic acid directly. This ensures that the active form of vitamin C is readily available for the skin, maximizing its benefits without relying on enzymatic processes. 

Bid farewell to the stability and limitation issues associated with vitamin C and embrace the future of skincare innovation with CosminC.
